OCZ readies 1KW PSU and memory cooler - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Assuming you still have the same combined amps:

two rails > one rail > multiple rails

It could go both ways...sometimes a dual-rail PSU offers more stability and widens the spread of the load so that 70amps isn't pumping through one rail, which may fluctuate with load which = BAD.

However, I'm sure the difference is fairly minimal with high-end PSU's.

The point of a single rail is so you don't have to spread the load o_O

And the only PSUs out that can deliver close to that many amps come from high end manufacturers who don't skimp out

Zippy, PCP&C, and Seasonic are the only ones I can name with high amp single rails in their PSUs

You can't just combine rails... That is why I used the car analogy.... You can't just combine 2 150MPH cars to get a 300MPH car.

The whole point of multi rails is so that you can attempt to match the performance of a high end single rail PSU with cheaper parts.

Then my next PSU should be a single rail with a lot of amps?

Actually, that is a very good point, if it has two or more pci-e connectors they will each be on their own rail which will provide the 8800 with more than enough amps and added stability. Even if for some ungodly reason it only has one pci-e then use it and a converter and that would use two rails.

Actually, since the 8800 has two power inputs then yes, you can combine rails in that instance. Using the car analogy, it's like using two trucks to pull out a stump, you may be able to do it with one big truck but two smaller trucks hooked to it can pull it out as well.

I like that memory cooler.........I think I may get it, except I'm gonna have to mod it, dremel all that mesh crap and just leave the frame holding the fans for better air-flow.

How much? $20! I'm there.

1KW PSU? I don't think so. I'll never bother with a PSU of that size. My Silencer is the last PSU I'll ever get.......unless.
